This would be a great book to use in early elementary school. It is fun and informative (short and sweet) with its' illustrations and what the animals do with their noses, ears, tails, eyes, feet, and mouths. It reminds me a little bit of Brown Bear, Brown Bear in that there are predictive pictures of parts of the animals where kids can guess what animal each body part belongs to. Reading the book may prompt some questions on why the animals do what they do, so I appreciate the information in the back of the book that explains in more details why these animals do what they do.

*This book can be used as a read aloud and discussion as a class then in small groups about the different animals. They can then do a short visual assessment of the different animals and/or a matching quiz to match the animal with the information the book provided. ( )

This book was just too cute. I loved how it would ask what would an animal do with a certain type of tail. And then the child learns what the tail looks like, what the tail does to help the animal, and learns about different animals throughout this book. ( )

I would use this book in lower level classrooms, specifically K-3. I think the complexity of language in the book is on the lower side of science books, but can still be helpful to our ELL students and struggling readers. I also think art projects can come out of this book.

Summary - This book explains how different animals use their noses to dig, find food, as a tool, or to breathe. It explains how different animals use their ears to see, keep cool, hear from a multitude of distances. It explains how different animals use their tails as weapons/ defensive tool or as a tool. It explains how different animals use their eyes to see from far distances, look in two directions, squirt liquid, or see at night. ETC.
How to Use - You could use this book to talk about different adaptations different animals have to survive. ( )

There are so many great things to see, feel, and learn about in this Caldecott Honor book about animal adaptations. Some of the Q and A games that could be played with first through fourth graders include "Which Animal?", "Which part of the Animal?". What Does this __ do?", "Why did the animal develop like this?", and so forth. Texture also becomes part of the learning experience due to the textural clues Jenkins includes in the surfaces of the pages. ( )

Jenkins, this time in collaboration with his wife, has created yet another eye-opening book. Children will learn that lizards can completely break off their tail as a defense and that it will grow back. And, they'll find out that crickets' ears are on their knees. Most fish have two eyes, but some have four, the better to see above and below the water at the same time. These are just a few of the fascinating facts of nature dangled out front to draw readers into this beautifully illustrated book. On each spread, five different animals' tails, ears, eyes, or other body parts, done in vibrant cut-paper collage, appear with a simple question ("What do you do with a- like this?"). The next spread shows the five creatures in their entirety and offers a brief explanation. For example, "If you're an elephant, you use your nose to give yourself a bath." The back pages offer more information for older or more curious readers. This is a great book for sharing one-on-one or with a group.

Not only does Jenkins (Life on Earth, 2002, etc.) again display a genius for creating paper-collage wildlife portraits with astonishingly realistic skin, fur, and feathers, but here on alternate spreads he zooms in for equally lifelike close-ups of ears, eyes, noses, mouths, feet, and tails. Five examples of each organ thrusting in from beyond the pages’ edges for each “What do you do” question precede spreads in which the point of view pulls back to show the whole animal, with a short accompanying caption. Visual surprises abound: a field cricket’s ears are actually on its legs; a horned lizard can (and does, here) squirt blood from its eyes as a defense mechanism; in an ingenious use of page design, a five-lined skink’s breakable tail enters and leaves the center gutter at different points. Capped by a systematic appendix furnishing more, and often arresting, details—“A humpback whale can be 50 feet long and weigh a ton per foot”—this array of wide eyes and open mouths will definitely have viewers responding with wide eyes and open mouths of their own. (Picture book/nonfiction. 6-9)
 
Here's another exceptional cut-paper science book from Jenkins, this time put together with a partner, and like previous books, it's a stunner. An opening page, clearly explaining how to use the book, is followed by a double-page spread picturing the mouths of several different animals, accompanied by the question, "What do you do with a mouth like this?" The next spread shows each animal in full, explaining in a few simple words how the part functions. Tail, ears, nose, and eyes are covered in the same manner. A picture glossary at the back shows each animal again, postage-stamp size, with an informative note elaborating on the creature's special adaptation. The notes also neatly answer questions that might arise during a reading (Why do horned lizards squirt blood out their eyes?) and add to the interactive aspect of the book. A variety of animals is represented--some (elephant, hippo, chimp) will be comfortably familiar; others (four-eyed fish, blue-footed booby) are of interest because of their strangeness. Jenkins' handsome paper-cut collages are both lovely and anatomically informative, and their white background helps emphasize the particular feature, be it the bush baby's lustrous, liquid-brown eyes or the skunk's fuzzy tail. This is a striking, thoughtfully created book with intriguing facts made more memorable through dynamic art.
